Fourteen peer-reviewed papers address the latest advances in pesticide formulations and delivery systems.
Three sections cover:
Formulationsaddresses some of the new challenges in formulating pesticides, including the advent of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and their effect on the chemical aspects of pest control; new uses of chemicals through formulation changes, liquid and solid formulations and applications, and fluorescent imaging to assess efficiency.
Delivery Systemsdiscusses delivery and interactions of the pesticide with the target organism, including spray release height and drop size, aerial sprays, and abscission sprays.
Adjuvantscovers the enhancement of pesticide formulation by the use of spray additives.
